Santo Domingo Public Bus (Other areas)
There are two different types of buses in the Dominican Republic, the local buses or “Guaguas,” which move passengers within a city.
Additionally, Guaguas has public buses (unionized drivers) and OMSA buses (government-owned).
OMSA buses are in better condition but reach fewer areas than the public buses.
On the other hand, there exist intercity buses or Guaguas. These services reach the whole island and link the main cities and tourist areas with the rest of the country.
Additionally, these vehicles have convenience and comfort, including an air conditioner.
